Shock Trauma Center


May 13, 2001|By Karin Remesch

More than 1,400 guests gathered at the new Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel to applaud emergency medical service providers statewide who make the University of Maryland's R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center a leader in caring for those with critical injuries. They also witnessed the presentation of Hero Awards to more than 100 emergency medical providers who were involved in the rescue and lifesaving efforts -- from answering 911 calls to the hospital release -- of two young women injured in separate automobile crashes last year. Both women, 19-year-old Michelle Tuttle, of Jarrettsville, and Anna Mongold, also 19, of Cumberland, attended the black-tie gala to greet the heroes.

The elegant sit-down dinner and dance raised more than $150,000 for the Shock Trauma Center. Attendees included John Ashworth, director of the Shock Trauma Center and chief operating officer of the University of Maryland Medical Center; Dr. Thomas M. Scalea, Shock Trauma Center physician-in-chief; event chairs Eileen M. Rehrmann and Gregory A. Devou, co-chairs of the solicitation and operation committee of the Shock Trauma Center Board of Visitors; Dr. Morton I. Rapoport, president and CEO, University of Maryland Medical System, and his wife, Rosalie; Dr. Donald E. Wilson, dean of the University of Maryland School of Medicine; Dr. David J. Ramsey, president, University of Maryland, Baltimore; Terry Slade Young, president, Baltimore County Chamber of Commerce; Del. Chuck Boutin and his wife, Cindy; Sen. Barbara A. Hoffman; Baltimore County Executive C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger; and John Paterakis, H&S. Bakery Inc. president.
